    Rain may have canceled Southington's Apple Harvest Festival on Saturday, but the Zion Lutheran Church still opened its famous apple fritter booth and many people braved the lines and the rain to get their hands on the popular fall treats.

    But the sun is shining Sunday as the annual event reopens for its two-weekend run. The event, located near the Southington Town Green, draws as many as 100,000 people every year.

    There are plenty of family-friendly activities including live music, entertainment, several food booths, contests, an arts and crafts show, carnival rides, children's activities and much more. The festival parade will step off at 2 p.m.

    The apple festival will open at noon and close at 7 p.m. The festival will also be open 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 11 and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 12. The fireworks were canceled Saturday but are rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 11 at 9 p.m. Admission and parking is free.
